Post time: 1:30 p.m. Best bet: Lady's Edition (10th race). Best Pick-4: 9th race, 50 cents (1,3,4,6,7,8,/11,/3,4,/2,5,6,7), $24
1st race 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $10,000. Purse $11,000. (#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds) 1/Racine Belle (Garnett, Canchari) 123 20-1 2/R Perks (Rivera, Wilson) 119 6-1 3/Mirka (Goodwin, Perez) 119 8-1 4/Don't Tattle (Dieguez, Oliver) 119 12-1 5/Theatre of Dreams (Riggs, Robertson) 119 6-1 6/Scrabblecat (B.Rhone, B.Rhone) 119 5-2 7/Soul Digger (Franco, Silva) 119 5-1 8/Cala B Tryen (Keith, Biehler) 119 4-1 9/Fancy Bell (Trimble, Gourneau) 122 5-1 CALA B TRYEN was outfinished in gate-to-wire effort in the mud last out. Trainer Biehler has her going a little bit further today second time out and could be lone speed with Lori Keith pushing her out quickly from the gate. SOUL DIGGER takes big class drop off the turf for trainer Silva. Should show early speed. SCRABBLECAT closed well last out to get second but will need a collapsing pace and better performance to get the win.
2nd race 1 mile, 70 yards. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $3,500. Purse $9,000. 1/The Quinnster (Stevens, Olesiak) 123 7-2 2/Cotswold Hills (Goodwin, Danger) 123 8-1 3/Victory Check (Bell, Schindler) 123 5-1 4/Chop Slewy (Dieguez, Perez) 123 12-1 5/Shryock (Rivera, Danger) 123 10-1 6/Tapinot (Riggs, Biehler) 123 3-1 7/Not So Timeless (Luark, Cole) 123 20-1 8/Dixie Buck (Keith, Liftin) 123 8-1 9/Mr. Rancho Vista (Walker Jr, Martinez) 123 9-2 THE QUINNSTER should come flying out of the gate off the rail where he will try to lead the field the whole way. If jockey Stevens can control the speed he could be tough to catch. TAPINOT gets jockey switch to Riggs who might try pressing the pace up front. Gelding is still seeking to hit the board this year. VICTORY CHECK ran decently against weaker foes at Lincoln Fair but might have built confidence and gets Bell for the ride.
3rd race 5 1/2 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $25,000. Purse $16,500. 1/Dear Fay (Bell, Robertson) 117 6-1 2/Answer the Officer (Keith, Biehler) 117 7-2 3/Freya's Blessing (Butler, Bravo) 121 6-1 4/Blue Ra Ra (Dieguez, Svendsen) 121 5-1 5/R Charmed Affair (Delorme, Donlin) 121 4-1 6/Foxy Lady Packin (Riggs, Oliver) 117 6-1 7/Diamond City (Garnett, Canchari) 121 15-1 8/Thelatestthing (Trimble, Johnson) 117 8-1 9/Don't Tell Franny (Rivera, Oliver) 117 12-1 DEAR FAY was way over her head last out in stakes race and returns to a field where she should enjoy coming off the rail and sitting off the pace. Reunites with Bell, who won two back with her. BLUE RA RA might be the pacesetter but should have company to duel with. Loses jockey Butler, which isn't a positive, but still have to respect. ANSWER THE OFFICER has been on the sideline for over 130 days but has a solid work tab for new trainer Biehler after running at the Fair Grounds.
5 1/2 furlongs. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $. Purse $7,000. 1/Mosaic
o (Luark, Olesiak) 123 8-1 2/

Left It in Vegas (Rhone, Arterburn) 123 7-2 9/
Red Headed Woman (Stevens, Jensen) 123 6-1 LA MALINCHE
stretches out today, having finished second last out after grabbing brief lead. Should show early speed, and anything close to last effort puts her in the mix. MOSAICO
also stretches out after struggling in a muddy sprint. Had a successful career last summer in Canada, and we should get a decent price today. VIA DI ROMA
usually is in the hunt and needs only to maintain present form to be a threat.
5th race 5 furlongs. 3 year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse $21,000. 1/Absolutelystriking (Rhone, Arterburn) 121 4-1 2/Thats Ray's Tiger (Rivera Jr., Sheehan) 121 20-1 3/Take Heart (Bell, Robertson) 118 7-2 4/Ize On Juan (Dieguez, Bethke) 121 6-1 5/Excessive Essence (Stevens, Arteburn) 121 3-1 6/Straitupcashhomey (Luark, Peters) 121 20-1 7/Stig's Deputy (Riggs, Perez) 121 2-1 STIG'S DEPUTY should love starting from the outside and pouncing like he did last out at this same distance. ABSOLUTELYSTRIKING has won at this distance before in closing style and could get the ball rolling once again for the Arterburn family. TAKE HEART won last time by closing through traffic problems for the Robertson barn.
6th race 11/16 miles. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse $13,000. 1/Glorious Destiny (Rivera, Davis Jr.) 119 12-1 2/Prairie Academy (Goodwin, Donlin) 119 8-1 3/Varna (Rosendo, Bravo) 119 5-1 4/Avenue Sister (Riggs, Robertson) 119 7-2 5/Hole in One (Walker Jr, Scherbenske) 119 10-1 6/Lookouthereicome (Rivera Jr, King) 119 30-1 7/Passion Talk (Butler, Bravo) 119 4-1 8/Three Inthe Kitty (Stevens, Rhone) 119 12-1 9/Mollyisintheclouds (Keith, Biehler) 119 8-1 10/Neverrguwithrichie (Bell, Becker) 119 5-1 AVENUE SISTER should enjoy the class relief after stalking last out at a decent pace but fading down the stretch. PASSION TALK has been knocking on the door but coming up short. NEVERRGUEWITHRICHIE draws the far outside post so jockey Bell will have to hustle the mare out to get in stalking position.
7th race 1 mile. 3 year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming. Purse $22,000. 1/Peaks of Legend (Riggs, Von Hemel) 116 8-1 2/Magic Bullet (Bell, Lynn) 119 15-1 3/Grandpa Roy (Dieguez, Porter) 119 9-2 4/Little Wagon (Delorme, Kirby) 119 4-1 5/Corporate Chapel (Stevens, Mankin) 118 6-1 6/Free Sailing (Butler, Bravo) 119 6-1 7/Lucky Moon (Franco, Biehler) 119 10-1 8/El Poppie (Rivera Jr., Arterburn) 119 5-1 9/Freedom First (Goodwin, Donlin) 119 10-1 10/First Captain (Keith, Hanson) 119 10-1 FREE SAILING should enjoy being reunited with the turf after finishing 15 lengths back in the slop last out. GRANDPA ROY finished third last out closing three-wide. Should run even better second off the layoff. LITTLE WAGON should enjoy the added distance today.
8th race Northbound Pride Oaks. 1 mile. Fillies. 3 year-olds. Purse $75,000. 1/Minnesota Thunder (Rivera, Rengstorf) 116 12-1 2/Banded (Walker Jr., Scherer) 116 2-1 3/Starship Duchess (Thornton, Roussell) 122 7-5 4/Southern Spice (Stevens, C.Smith) 116 6-1 5/Soonerette (Riggs, Von Hemel) 118 5-1 6/Checkoutmyman (Dieguez, Silva) 116 8-1 STARSHIP DUCHESS ships up from Arlington for this $75,000 stakes race after winning impressively by three lengths. Jockey Thorton comes up for the ride. BANDED ran a couple of place honors on the dirt and gets back to the grass, where she won last out at Fair Grounds rolling late. SOUTHERN SPICE is the local favorite who has won last two but will have to improve a great deal to beat this field.
9th race 6 1/2 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse $10,500. 1/Missnorasdouble (Butler, Bravo) 123 7-2 2/Pic Three Bertie (Rivera, Padilla) 123 20-1 3/Carousing (Stevens, Biehler) 123 3-1 4/Talk Talk (Franco, Silva) 123 8-1 5/Cherryful Lady (Trimble, Canchari) 119 12-1 6/Kanija (Riggs, Berndt) 123 5-1 7/Markree Breeze (Keith, Davis Jr.) 119 6-1 8/Oh Gee She's Gold (Dieguez, Sheehan) 123 9-2 9/Sami's in Trouble (Goodwin, Shryock) 123 15-1 CAROUSING should enjoy the cutback in distance, showing early speed with jockey Stevens at the helm. Has hit the board in lone two efforts this summer. MISSNORASDOUBLE gets class relief coming off a sloppy shorter sprint race. I imagine Butler will send her to the front starting from the rail position. OH GEE SHES GOLD gets a nice outside post to get into stalking positions. Consistent runner who usually gets a share.
10th race 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse $11,520. 1/Dance Crazy (Dieguez, Bethke) 119 6-1 2/Sea Limit (Butler, Fauchald) 123 12-1 3/I Dont Wanna (Delorme, Johnson) 123 15-1 4/Three Blind Mice (Riggs, Danger) 119 15-1 5/Siften Gold Nugget (Trimble, Peters) 119 12-1 6/Musical Abigail (Luark, Olesiak) 123 5-1 7/Lucky Gem (Rosendo, Pfeifer) 119 10-1 8/Blue Tern (Chen, Gourneau) 119 15-1 9/Demi's Bid (Prado, Winget) 123 12-1 10/Puma's Planet (Stevens, Donlin) 123 12-1 11/Lady's Edition (Goodwin, Pfeifer) 123 5-2 12/East Coast Carm (Rivera Jr, Riddle) 119 12-1 LADY'S EDITION gets a bad post, but her speed figures tower over the field, so it shouldn't matter. Should stalk the pace and take over when asked. LUCKY GEM takes a huge class drop and does have some early speed. DANCE CRAZY has shown early speed but can't last. Tries another jockey switch.
11th race Canterbury Park Quarterhorse Derby. 400 yards. 3 year-olds. Purse $19,000. 1/Streak N Hot (Trimble, Haglund) 124 6-1 2/Ivory Celebration (C.Smith, Johnson) 124 15-1 3/Huckleberry Mojito (Goodwin, Hardy) 124 2-1 4/Painted Lies (Smith, Blair) 124 4-1 5/Paint Or More (Luark, Blair) 124 10-1 6/Bp Phoenix Reign (Prado, Hardy) 124 30-1 7/Corona Jess Lika (Delorme, Johnson) 124 15-1 8/Pita Chick (Frink, Hardy) 124 10-1 9/Unseen Angel (Bell, Wessels) 124 12-1 10/Feature Dreamgirl (Wellington, Hardy) 124 5-1 HUCKLEBERRY MOJITO goes for third straight win after blowing away the field in three-length victory at trial run. Looks tough again. PAINTED LIES goes for fifth consecutive win and is good as advertised. Consistent runner who will try to get up in final strides. FEATURE DREAMGIRL has lost three straight to Painted Lies, all by half-length or less.
12th race 330 yards. State-bred. 3 year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $10,000. Purse $7,400. 1/Karls Heidin R Cash (Swiontek, Kloskin) 126 15-1 2/Not a Cheap Date (Fennell, Miller) 124 5-1 3/Quiet Groom (Frink, Clevenger) 124 6-1 4/Br Hotrod (C.Smith, Johnson) 124 8-1 5/Dancing Bully (Luark, Murray) 124 2-1 6/Rangers Little Bit (Goodwin, Berg) 124 4-1 7/My Big Time Beduino (Prado, Black) 124 3-1 DANCING BULLY, who has hit the board in last three races and is the M/L favorite, gets the slight nod. RANGERS LITTLE BIT and MY BIG TIME BEDUINO have both finished behind our top pick in previous races.
